Grocery Outlet is coming to Dinuba. The new store will open its doors at 8am on Thursday, May 29, followed by a ribbon-cutting at 9am. A public grand opening event will begin at 8am on Saturday, May 31.
Co-owner/operator Gary DeCoursey has more than 22 years of experience in the grocery retail and distribution industries for companies such as Safeway and Pepsi Co. When he was in the early stages of applying to be a Grocery Outlet owner, his wife, Cheryl, decided to team up with him and become a co-owner.
“We are overjoyed to bring the new Grocery Outlet store to the Dinuba community,” said Gary DeCoursey. “Residents will now have a place to purchase high-quality products at affordable prices in a family-friendly environment.”
The DeCourseys are creating 35 jobs with the store opening, and are currently accepting applications.
The grand opening event is open to the public and will feature free coffee and treats, free eco-frugal reusable bags for the first 500 customers, free Spin & Win on the Wheel of Bargains prizes, free face painting for kids, a free play magic cart and more.
Attendees can enter for a chance to win one of three grand prizes from May 31 through July 4. Grand prizes include: Phat Cycles Sea Wind Classic His and Hers Bicycle Cruisers; a Spirit E-220 Gas Grill from Dinuba Lumber Company and a $100 fresh meat certificate from Grocery Outlet; and free groceries for one year ($600 value). The prize drawing will be held at noon on Saturday, July 5.
In addition, attendees at the grand opening event can purchase a hot dog and soda for $1, with all proceeds benefitting the Dinuba High School Leadership Group. Attendees can also meet their Frugal Friends, Lois Prices and Ben Saven, who have scheduled appearances throughout the day. The DeCourseys will donate a pallet of food worth $1,000 to the Open Gate Ministries at the ribbon-cutting event, which is hosted by the Dinuba Chamber of Commerce.
The new Grocery Outlet in Dinuba is located at 667 N. Alta Ave., and will be open 8am to 9pm every day.
The expansion into Dinuba is one of 18 new Grocery Outlet stores scheduled to open this year. For more information on Grocery Outlet, visit www.GroceryOutlet.com.
